Obama's Grand Plan To Take Down Trump BACKFIRED
The Obama Administration is revealed to have executed a plan to make Donald Trump the face of the Republican party. It looks like they succeeded and it backfired on them spectacularly.

According to The Daily Wire:

A new book titled, “Obama: An Oral History,” reveals that former President Barack Obama's 2008 campaign manager and senior advisor David Plouffe said the Obama Administration wanted to raise the profile of Donald Trump so that he would become the "identity" of the Republican Party.

As author Brian Abrams delineates, Plouffe added that raising Trump’s profile was "super helpful" to them. According to Abrams, Plouffe stated:

There was strategy. Lifting up Trump as the identity of the Republican Party was super helpful to us. The president went out in the briefing room to present his long-form birth certificate, [but] really to continue the dance with Trump. Our view was lifting Trump at the White House Correspondents Dinner, you know, as kind of the example of the Obama opposition. There was a strategy behind the material and the amount of time we spent on Trump. Let's really lean into Trump here. That'll be good for us.

This strategy did not work. Donald Trump with his heightened profile went on to win the Republican nomination for president and beat Hillary. The rest is history.
